World Usability Day was founded to ensure that the services and products
important to life are easier to access and simpler to use.
Even if this year the theme is health, it is a good time to check our website for usability issues, more and more visitors expect to have an usable website (also in terms of accessibility). One year ago I had set up a usability resources list so if you need to refresh your knowledge about usability you know where to go 😉
Also don’t forget why you want your website to be accessible:
- There are 8.6 million registered disabled people in the UK
- One in 12 men and one in 200 women have some form of color blindness
- Two million UK residents have a sight problem
- There are 12 million people aged 60 or over
